Watch this dizzying video of world skydiving champion Martin Kristensen spinning, dipping, swooping above the beautiful landscapes of Voss, near Bergen (just ignore the awful script).
The video, Freefall, begins, "The past is a place which only exists in our memory," and goes on to depict skydiving as a kind of philosophical quest. 
 
It was part-funded by Skydive Voss, Norway's largest skydiving club, and the Vossvind indoor skydiving centre — which charges 6,400 Norwegian kroner ($787) for just an hour in its vertical wind tunnel. 
 
But the footage of him zipping around in the tunnel makes that almost seem worth the money.
